Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book specifies on which track Coltrane plays the tenor and on which he plays the soprano, whereas Lord only notes that Coltrane plays both instruments but does not provide any specificity.

The book source notes that this performance took place at 7:30pm and was an ORF radio broadcast. The book source retrieved its information from a private tape of the radio broadcast. Tracks from the performance were later issued by Magnetic, Black Bird, and Ingo labels.
